After “Archiving” on World Watch is Adjusted, Still Asking Why
As a less newsworthy content creator, I’ve been reading about the dust-up between bloggers and AVEN from the sidelines.
Then I wrote a three-page email to AVEN, and didn’t send it.
Then I wrote a deeply sarcastic post for my blog, maybe the forums, and didn’t post it.
Both hid the questions I have and unease I feel. I can’t not speak, though. But… those questions have been partially answered to, so I just leave you with the following thought:
You want to preserve good content about asexuality?
- Create an appropriate platform
- Give creators free access or good communication channels
- Edit content properly
- State clearly what your criteria are, so people can submit as well.
At the time of writing, the tip-of-the-iceberg problem has been resolved, namely, blog posts are linked, not copied and several have been removed upon request. I’m still wondering about the rest of it…
- Asexy Zine Archive
- Asexuality Media Archive
- Organisation for Transformative Works
- What Price Visibility, by Ace-muslim in the Asexual Agenda
- Not Cool, AVEN, by Prismatic Entanglements
- Archival Controversy by Cake at the Fortress
- Redbeardace’s good explanation of why readers are a blogger’s lifeblood
- AVEN Thread discussing the policy.
